Talking about this interesting workout regime, which is gaining popularity, his trainer, Devrath Vijay, says, “Varun needed to look lean in the film and improve his movements, mobility and flexibility. This is where the animal flow workout comes in. I started training Varun in December.” The actor would work out three hours a day, with one-and-a-half-hour dedicated to weight training and the rest for the animal flow workout.
Elaborating on the training sessions, Devrath adds, “Here, there is no external weight or equipment involved. The idea is that you mimic a certain animal’s movement pattern, which improves not only your flexibility, but also your mobility and strength. With mere gym training, one’s body tends to get stiff, but since the project required him to be agile, we decide to try this out.”
Interestingly, the actor had also mentioned in his post that the workout helped him regain his stamina after he recovered from COVID-19. The fitness trainer explains, “This technique leads to better mobility as it opens up the body, which in turn helps you breathe better. The workout coupled with proper nutrition helped him regain his strength and get fit again.”
